Evanescence guitarist Terry Balsamo is recovering from a stroke.
Singer Amy Lee has posted a message on the Evanescence message board saying Balsamo had a stroke in November. She says he was in the intensive care unit for a while and he’s made “miraculous progress.”She says when Balsamo would wake up all he could talk about was getting out of the hospital and playing guitar. He even made them bring his guitar to the hospital.
In Lee’s words, “We are certain that he will make a full recovery – he’s too stubborn to settle for anything less.”
Lee also expects the next Evanescence album to be out by the fall.
